I’ve had a great year being a Fisher-Price blogger. I’ll be totally honest – I really wanted to sign up for this Mom Central Canada campaign because of Charlie being such a new baby last year at this time, and it seemed like it would be nice to treat him to some of their baby [...]

What a better time than the madness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, now seeping into Canada, to again discuss holiday shopping needs. How are you getting on? Do you have a list? Are you checking it twice? In a brief moment of clarity this week, I pulled a lined piece of paper out of [...]
I mentioned before that it’s my concentrated gift-giving season in the fall and winter. And it starts now, with Charlie’s first birthday. Followed by Callum’s fifth birthday, and then Christmas, and then Mark and Oliver’s birthday all before New Year’s Day. It can get a little expensive. This is why I actually like to pick [...]
Last month I talked about the new Joy of Learning Playtime Guide on the Fisher-Price website. As I wrote that post, we received a huge delivery with some great toys inside. An end of summer treat for the kids that has made them very happy – and has allowed me to see learning through play [...]

We’re approaching birthday season in this house. Everyone except me is born in late fall/early winter. Throw in Christmas and it’s the most wonderful (sing it with me) and expensive time of the year. So I am already anticipating our upcoming toy purchases for the kids. What would they like? What do I think they [...]
The summer is just whizzing by. Those four weeks of day camp for Oliver and Callum are almost up. The weekends have been filled with swimming pool and park visits, and riding bikes all around. I’m going to blink and then they’ll all be off to Camp England without me. I’m going to Camp NYC [...]

I’ve given myself a gift this summer. A gift of four weeks of day camp for two out of three boys (the baby is not quite old enough to send out alone yet. YET). It cost a decent amount, this gift, but I think it’ll be worth it. The pros (7 hours of just me [...]
At the beginning of May, the weather was sunny but cool. I remember this one particular afternoon. A cold wind blew across the playground and right into the baby’s face. Ugh. I thought, forget this, we’re going home to play inside (I’m not going to talk about how much whining and foot stomping took place [...]

Environmental protection is a constant topic of conversation in our house. Usually consisting of “don’t step on the butterfly”, “please don’t drop that Popsicle wrapper in the garden” and “bloody hell, the baby just had another blow out and he’s wearing a cloth diaper!”. But seriously, on a daily basis, I’m trying to impart that [...]
